Les Cornes de St Jean is a custom which was observed as recently as 1973 in Jersey, on either St John's Eve or St John's Day (23/24 June). Participants blew shells or horns just before sunset. The origins of this custom perhaps lay in landowners reminding their tenants that their rental was payable at midsummer.
